Celtic Knotwork






I’ve had a great day today drawing these Celtic designs. You may have seen my earlier work from a few weeks ago, and these pictures represent my improved skills since then. Still a bit wobbly, but it has been a lovely challenge getting my head around the “under – over ” process to make these designs.

My favourite is the snakes but you can see the places where I got carried away and did too many cross overs. Oops here comes the liquid paper to correct my mistakes!

If ever you fancy having a go at these I urge you to do so. I have found them very relaxing to do and in a way they are a form of prayer and meditation, especially the colouring on part.

  1. Get your Daughter to “Liberate” a coil of 1/2″ Manila for you and make a doormat with a Celtic Knot. It will take about 3 rounds a la Turks Head Knot. Get yourself a cheap coil of poly rope and practice first. You will need to whip the ends of the rope to stop it unwinding. Poly you can just singe it… Cheers George.
